We are available year-round to perform short pieces at your church or other venue. We can also lead workshops on a variety of topics.
West of Bethlehem – a one-act play with music by Ethan Norman
The piece focuses on the powerful contrast in the imagery behind the Shepherds. In the Kingdom of God, Shepherd is an honored title and the Shepherd is a picture of leadership. In the kingdom of men, the Shepherd is the dregs of society; and shepherding is a task of drudgery with little personal gain. We delve into this example for us in Christ as it plays out in the Christmas story, with laughter and with heaviness at moments.
West of Bethlehem, offers your fellowship, in the midst of a crazy season, a reminder to set aside some jingle bells and remember the beauty, majesty, and perfection of the story that God gave us. A story where God’s majestic birth announcement, came to what the world would call the lowest of the low.

The WordPlayers’ original production On a Hill Far Away captures characters from the Gospel accounts in the wake of their life changing interactions with Jesus. With an inspiring mix of humor, drama, and music, On a Hill Far Away takes truth and testimony that seem so far away, and connects them with our here and now in a picture that people today can step into.
